p.s. For those of you wondering if I will ever get around to publishing something again, I will. My planned next project, "A Reluctant Hero," set in 2013-14 of Al Steiner's Greenies/A Perfect World universe has been proceeding slowly in fits and starts. I got diverted a few weeks a few weeks ago by a reader who posed the question, "What would have happened if Al Davis and the Raiders had drafted Kyle?"

I planned to shoot the reader a brief outline of events that would have transpired. It was supposed to be a page or two response. Instead the concept grabbed my attention and interest. I've passed 90 pages in the story, so it will be posted for everyone to read.

Am I crazy for planning to post an alternate ending to Lost and Found? Maybe. It turned out to be an interesting concept to me, so all of you will get to see it in a few weeks. I am almost finished writing it.
